More fun yaaay
evaluate $$\int \int \int_{G} x^2 yz dx dy dz$$
where G is bounded by plane z=0, z=x, y=1, y=x

certrainly zi s bounded below by 0 and above by x. and y is boundedbelow by 1 and above by x. having a hard time picturing this...

i dont think this would pictured how the double integrals were, is there a way to visualize this?? Let x come out of the apge, y go right and z upwards
then z=0 is the x y plane, y =1 come out the page y=x come out of the and goes right and finally z=x come out the page and goes upward
but i dont think this helped determining the bounds did it??
Plase help

SOLUTION HINTS:
Try the following:

$$1: \ \ \ \ \int_{x=0}^{1} \int_{y=1}^{x} \int_{z=0}^{x} x^2 \cdot y \cdot z \ dz \, dy \, dx \ \ =$$

$$2: \ \ \ \ = \ \ \int_{x=0}^{1} \ x^2 \ \left ( \int_{y=1}^{x} y \ \left( \int_{z=0}^{x} z \, dz \right) \ dy \right ) \ dx \ \ =$$

$$3: \ \ \ \ = \ \ \int_{x=0}^{1} \ x^2 \ \left ( \int_{y=1}^{x} y \ \left( \, \left[ z^{2}/2 \right]_{0}^{x} \, \right) \ dy \right ) \ dx \ \ =$$

$$4: \ \ \ \ = \ \ \int_{x=0}^{1} \ x^2 \ \left ( \int_{y=1}^{x} y \cdot (x^{2}/2) \ dy \right ) \ dx \ \ =$$

$$5: \ \ \ \ = \ \ \int_{x=0}^{1} \ (x^{4}/2) \ \left ( \int_{y=1}^{x} y \ dy \right ) \ dx \ \ =$$

Continue this process until all integrations have been performed and evaluated.

Xanthym, the result is negative, that should not be. Change over the bound of integration with respect to y.

Stunner, you should sketch a diagram to find the bounds of integration. You have to find a closed volume as the domain of integration. That is a tetrahedron in this case, with vertexes (0,0,0), (1,1,1), (0,1,0) and (1,1,0) Look at the picture. So it is either

$$\int_{x=0}^{1} \int_{y=x}^{1} \int_{z=0}^{x} x^2 \cdot y \cdot z \ dz \, dy \, dx$$

or

$$\int_{y=0}^{1} \int_{x=0}^{y} \int_{z=0}^{x} x^2 \cdot y \cdot z \ dz \, dx \, dy$$.

(Bounds on y-integration corrected, now {y="x→1"} instead of previous {y="1→x"}, thanks to ehild's comment.)
